NAME
       man.conf - configuration data for man

DESCRIPTION
       This  file  is  read by man(1) and contains (a) information on how to construct the search
       path for man, (b) full path names for various programs like nroff, eqn, tbl etc.  used  by
       man,  and  (c) a list with uncompressors for files with a given extension.  An alternative
       version of this file can be specified with

	      man -C private_man.conf ...

       The command names may be provided with options.	Useful options to nroff can be	found  in
       grotty(1).  For example, instead of the default line

	      NROFF /usr/bin/groff -mandoc -Tlatin1

       one may write

	      NROFF /usr/bin/groff -mandoc -Tlatin1 -P-u -P-b

       in order to suppress underlining and overstriking.

FILES
       @man_config_file@
